Inter have no chance of signing Giacomo Raspadori this summer, according to Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali.
The Nerazzurri were one of many clubs linked with a move for the striker earlier today, along with AC Milan and RB Leipzig.
Eintracht Frankfurt and Marseille have also reportedly shown an interest in Raspadori, but it looks as if the 21-year-old is staying in Reggio-Emilia for at least another season.
“Raspadori doesn’t have a price tag because we don’t want to sell him,” Carnevali told Tuttosport for today’s print edition.
“Sassuolo put their faith in youngsters and Raspadori needs to establish himself with us.
“Raspadori is staying, 100%, and we don’t even want to consider offers that might arrive for him.”
Inter have announced Simone Inzaghi as their new head coach today on a two-year deal, replacing Antonio Conte who left last week.
Conte departed by mutual consent after deciding he couldn’t accept Suning’s plans to cut costs and possibly sell players, and now he seems close to joining Tottenham Hotspur.
“I expected Conte to leave Inter,” Carnevali admitted.
“You kind of saw it was going to happen.”
Carnevali was also not surprised to see Inter win the Serie A title last month, as Conte helped them end an 11-year wait for the Scudetto.
“I was certain that Beppe Marotta would have taken Inter back to winning things, thanks to his partnership with Conte,” he added.
“Beppe is one of the best managers in Europe.”
